After an expensive plan to overhaul Las Palmas Park was scrapped by the City Council, park officials in San Fernando say they have a new, more salable way to make improvements. If the new proposal is approved by the council, the city could spend about $335,000 to improve two baseball fields, build a picnic area and replace existing restrooms with a larger concession and restroom structure, according to a consultant's report. The improvements are only the first phase of a proposed $3.
